1998 1/4 oz Panda Gold Large Date
« on: January 25, 2011, 07:39:58 PM »
I would like to hear your opinion on a 1/4 LD I bought today on e*b*a*y
Here is the auction
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=370476438354&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT

I am aware that the coin should not be finest quality but as lately 1998 1/4 oz SD sold for around 1,000 $ and my records since mid 2007 show out of a total of 26 1/4 oz Pandas 17 SD, 7 non-identfiable and only 2 LD, one boguht by me in 2008 and the one in the auction above I think this coin is by far rarer than mintage figures suggest. Actually, I won this auction far below my high bid.

What's your view on that?

I will appreciate any comment and be grateful, if anyone could post stats of NGC and PCGS on that Panda

I saw that coin and I passed on it because it's all scraped up.

Based on my own statistics, this was a very well bought coin, a good price. The condition does not concern me in this instance. Congratulations!

Best wishes,
